The Lamy family has been working in the vineyards since 1640. Domaine Hubert Lamy was created by Hubert Lamy in 1973. Before creating his own domaine Hubert worked with his father, Jean Lamy. At that time the domaine was around 8 hectares in size, planted mainly in 'regionale appellations'.
Most of the development of the Domaine was during the 1990's when new vines were bought or rented (Clos de la Chatenière, Derrière Chez Edouard, Murgers des dents de Chien, Clos du Meix, Santenay Clos des Hâtes) or planted (En Remilly). Some parcels which were planted with Pinot Noir vines were changed to Chardonnay vines because it was considered this was a better choice for the soil type (La Princée).
Olivier Lamy, after his studies and a stint working at Meo-Camuzet, joined the Domaine in 1995. One of the first vineyard practices that Oliver brought to the domaine was the overplanting of vineyards to encourage more structure in the vine and more intensity in the wines. The first vineyard he did this with was the 1er Cru vineyard of Derrière Chez Edouard in 1990. He also uses large barrels with very little new oak to allow the wines to completely express the unique terroir of the area.
Today the Domaine has 18.5 hectares of vines - 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir, mostly in Saint-Aubin, Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne-Montrachet and Santenay. The wines are classic in expression, full of tension and minerality.
En Remilly is regarded by many to be the very finest 1er cru in St Aubin, which is located between the villages of Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet, up-hill from the Grand Cru of Montrachet itself. The wines are always marked with precision and finesse.
